Bench to Bedside and Beyond seminar on Oct. 16 to focus on funding opportunities

The Penn State Clinical and Translational Science Institute will present “Funding Opportunities Unique to Clinical and Translational Science Institute” at its next Bench to Bedside and Beyond Seminar Series, set for noon to 1 p.m. on Oct. 16. 

In addition to being held in H4504 at the Penn State College of Medicine, the session will be streamed to 116 Henderson Building at the University Park campus, as well as online. Online registration is requested; the online stream link will be provided upon registration.

Charity Sauder, the institute’s administrative director, will discuss several funding opportunities available through the institute. These include the Bridges to Translation Pilot Grant Program, which is now accepting letters of intent, and several programs that are limited to CTSA Program institutions and have less competition than other National Institutes of Health grants.

The Bench to Bedside and Beyond Seminar Series is held to encourage an engaged translational science workforce while promoting a culture of continuous improvement in research conduct and practice at Penn State.
